Working Group on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities

The informal Working Group was created at the initiative of the UN Information Center in Moscow following the adoption by the UN General Assembly of the Convention on the Rights of the Persons with Disabilities in December 2006. The group brings together the representatives of the Government, the civil society, including organizations dealing with the problems of disability, as well as interested UN agencies and structures.
